I will have an order from Rosydawn for coleus coming in on March 27 so they will be about a month old at the time of the RU. I will probably have to start the pinching process about that time. If anyone is interested in coleus, I could root the pinchings for you. There would probably be only 1, maybe two plants of each to share at that point in time but hey. From one coleus, come many. If you want to see the plants and read the requirements, go to rosydawngardens.com

Im getting:

Big red Judy
Electric Lime
Gold Lace
Hot Sauce
Jungle Love
Mariposa
Rustic Orange
Saturns Rings
Songbird

Pattie, there's a whole lot I'd like to have from your list:
pink Texas skullcap
colocasia Black Magic pup
coleus cuttings (any are fine as all of mine are gone)
no-name sky blue salvia
tall red NOID canna with bronze foliage (from Patricia's garden) (ALL of mine died! I think they are called 'Red Stripe.')
sedum golden acre
blue salvia, Indigo Spires

Pattie, I have a huge sweet autumn clematis and can try to root cuttings for you. I've not had any luck rooting it before, but perhaps this time? I'll put it on my list in case someone else wants cuttings too.

And poop. I still have a shed full of goat poop that is at least seven years old, dry, crumbly, and ready to use. I'll add that to my list too.

Stephanie, a couple of your passis would be great. If you have four-nerves, that would be great too, but don't go to extra trouble. What can I bring you?

So confused! In MA, SAC (sweet autumn clematis) is kind of a thug. It will take over everything if you let it, so I wouldn't worry about getting a lot, because it spreads fast. If you need an area covered immediately, of course that's different.

I wonder if the aged goat poop would be ok stored inside? Still not outdoor gardening!!!

I read an article about sweet autumn clematis the other day. It's believed that there are two that are very similar going by the same name. They look alike, but one is a Japanese strain and one is not. The Japanese strain is the one that's usually the thug (and an exotic invasive in some areas), while the other is well-behaved like other clematises. I actually think I have both. I can't tell the difference just from looking at leaves/stems/flowers, but one grows/blooms about four times more than the others and produces millions of seeds.

In this case, I'm not at all picky cuz I have 60 feet of 8-foot fence to cover. Whatever anyone has to share will be great.

Dennis, Galangal is a type of ginger used in Thai and other Asian cooking. You would use the root just as other ginger. I got it at an RU at Joy's farm last year. It is in a pot and needs to be divided. I think it needed to be divided when I received it. It is rather pretty also. I grow it in mostly shade and it is a lighter green with nice foliage. Up against dark evergreen in my yard it looks good. I will post a photo on Friday if not before. I think it is called Blue Ginger also.

Dennis, I have a two ft tall Esperanza you may have. Here it can get 6 feet in one season. I grew it from seed. It is the yellow one. I have seeds for orange but have not planted them yet. want some seeds too?

Dennis,
If you are looking to make a succulant pot garden I would suggest a twist leaf yucca from patrob. I got two from her a couple years ago and they remain relatively small and are quite tough. Add to that they are pretty and its a good overall plant. I put one of mine in my cactus bed and the other is in a reg. garden bed but will probably be moved into a pot this spring. I will take a pic for you tomorrow.

My oh my...

I can bring some egg cartons, but not many, just freecycled a bunch.
I have 2 potted small lantana, Pink/yellow/white Lantana camara "confetti", potted last fall, ready to go...
I am digging out Iris to add another bed to the vegetable garden, might pot a couple. I have some of the fancy peach scented ones (see my have list). .
beautiful silver artemisa, fine leaved type, 2 cuttings
I have a pot of very pale early daffodils that are scented. Tazetta Narcissus
6 Leucojum Aestivum. bulbs, 2 of which still have stems, potted up today.
1 rooted cutting of red turks cap, might make it. Will bring if alive.
mixed color dutch bearded iris - white, lavender, blue, purple - unknown which is which
Starts of my oregano, which blooms white, is only moderately invasive, mild spicy flavor (not super hot), and MIGHT be greek oregano "Origanum vulgare" but its taste does not burn the tongue. I cook with it a lot, very nice stuff fresh or dried.

i would like a rooted cutting of passionflower edulis.
I have been looking for this for years, last had one in the early 1990's:
Honey Daisy, Huisache Daisy, Amblyolepsis setigera
a mason bee house or woodblock with tubes would be wonderful. And any kind of bee forage.
There is a tiny wildflower that grows in little grassy clumps about 6 inches tall and is native to north Texas, Swordleaf Blue-Eyed Grass (Sisyrinchium chilense), Iridaceae Family, native, perennial, blooms in March through May

Read more: http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/528127/#ixzz2NlGBQ0PN
Thank you DG for the Texas natives thread. I'd like a small clump if anyone has any. (although it likes being in the lawn better than a watered flowerbed.

Gypsi and others that are new to our RUs...
I will add you a link to the post you just made and put it at the top of this thread with the others. When you get ready to update it, just click that link, then click where it says "in reply to". Then you will see the normal edit in the left column. Hope that helps.

We usually add the attendance thread about a month before so people have plans all set and know they are coming. Then a couple weeks or so before the RU we will put out a food thread you can sign up for that.

One other thing is door prizes (one for each person in your group) nothing expensive, garden related and not gender specific. Bird feeder, yard art, gloves, a plant, book, even potting soil, etc.

[quote="steadycam3"]Waco, How do you use wine bottles as planters? Sounds interesting.[/quote]

You can put moss or peat with a small amount of soil mix in them in a ball of chicken wire that fits up inside the bottle, then you can take a wire coat hanger and fish it down into the neck of the bottle and hook it to the chicken wire with the larger hook on the other end to hang it. I like to use needle nose pliers and crimp the smaller hook onto the chicken wire just to make sure it isn't going to blow apart in our Texas wind. I don't have any pictures of my old ones but I have seen some pics on Pinterest of others. They are really pretty. I just don't have any place to hang plants now in our new house.

Got Cheryl for echinacea and Marty for both daisies.

Marty, do you think you'll have enough coleus pinched to bring me a piece of Hot Sauce? Mine didn't make it over the winter and it's one of my faves.

Stephanie, could I prevail upon you for a couple of your west Texas mist flowers? One of the things we're doing at my friend's house is starting a butterfly garden.

Patrob, I have a couple types of sedum. One is probably the same as Dennis's. Would you like a little of each?

Steadycam, I started a few TX rock rose last year and if they have viable roots I can bring one. The appear alive as of this morning.

I also have a large pot with black and blue salvia in it. I haven't tried it in ground (afraid of it taking over) and it never really blooms much in the pot. I would be happy to pull it up and bring it to someone but I am not going to repot the thing as its huge.

I have a lot of mixed iris - deep purple, lavender, white that I am lifting to make room for veggies and summer season blooms. I will not be potting these I don't think. Depending on how far I've gotten I may be lifting them the day before the roundup, so if they get planted the same weekend, they might either continue blooming or bloom this year. I have no idea how many I will be bringing. An old friend in the iris society blessed me in 1992, and I have multiplied that blessing a few times. so yes, Carol, plenty of iris, no trades needed. The one color I don't have is yellow, and i don't want yellow. I had one very favorite yellow shade but I am afraid I lost that iris in a move, and it is the only yellow one I'm partial to.

today I learned what a rain lily was, after googling, from this thread. It's that thing that grows wild in my front yard. i believe I have the white. I never know what I will learn on Daves garden. I have a little balloon flower that showed up once in awhile. Have to be careful around my front flower bed where I migrate things that I find in the grass. So far I've also found 2 species of daffodil, the late one is currently in bloom. I have been trying to get the tiny purple wild iris to grow for me, but I think I have lost them, and I would like some someday.

and I have half a dozen accidentally unearthed summer snowflake bulbs, Leucojum Aestivum, that ended up in a pot today. (they were destined to go elsewhere, but ended up coming home with me, forgotten in the truck. Will be adding them to my offers for trade.

Welcome, Carol! I can bring you a Japenese iris if you like. Mine have never bloomed (in too much shade), but I'm told they're blue.

Josephine, I'd love your purple bearded iris. Don't have very many blues or purples.

Cheryl, got you down for the cones (did I already post that?). If you still have the heartleaf skullcap, will you put me down, please?

Gypsi, I would also love your peach iris, if there are any left. If not, do you have another iris you could bring? I have a bed full of irises from online friends and would like to include one from you. Or anyone else on here, for that matter.

Stephanie, did I ever answer you about the passi foetida? If you have a lot, I'd love two. I seem to have a hard time keeping them alive after the cats are through with them. Maybe if I have two, one might make it.

Anna, you know, I have had that bog sage for you going on two years now. And, the very minute I posted that, it started wilting, and now I think it's DOA. No idea what happened to it except that I posted that I had it! Anyway, the main pot of it is coming out nicely, so it shouldn't be a problem to get another one. Just wanted to let you know it won't be as established as what I had planned to bring.

While I'm doing that, I could probably get another one started, if anyone else wants one.

I have an amazing quantity of snowflake bulbs, but right now they are in bloom, and the bulbs are so deep and so crowded, I damaged the 6 I lifted, so I didn't want to harm them by trying to trade.

Serious trading coming up? They just grow beautifully, disappear below ground in summer, come back in winter. I started with 2 bulbs in 1993, and nurtured them along... They are at my daughters' homes now too

I want to say I have similar to on the Earl of Essex, but I don't think I have that one. I have several "blue" varieties, one that is heavily scented, at least one dark purple variety, lots of white, one with a grayish top and blue/violet falls, but it has been a number of years since all have bloomed between drought and crowding, and I have lifted and given many away. Still have a lot to go. I set some out last year in individual spots so I could ID them, did 100+ feet of fenceline at one foot intervals, maybe I will get some bloom and find out. The peach I always kept separate, because they were my favorite.

The flowers are vivid red, but small. lol I had my stapelia (starfish cactus aka carrior flower) in the sunroom when it bloomed. thinking the description of the odor had to be exaggerated. When the sun hit the great big beautiful flower, the odor was incredible and I took it outside immediately!

Hi All,

I thought I might show you guys what I was using some of the wine bottles for. Since I work a lot I dont get to water my garden when I need to sometimes and since my raised bed is not put in yet (again, time issue here), I have all my starters and plants in containers.

The wine bottles I get from work are perfect for helping me keep the little sprites watered. I can come by in the evening after work and fill the bottles as they empty. I have used similar methods in my raised beds in the past.

If you are busy and have the same problem, I have the bottles. I get 2 or 3 from work a week so that means I will have quite a few when the RU comes. Let me know if you want any, I will be more than happy to help you out.

Wow what a fantastic idea! Patrob if you are going to be in Waco or Hewitt area in say about the week of the 7th or after I could make sure there are bags for poop delivery if you want. They are not huge but (about the size of a 'green' grocery store tote) I could get you a few. What do you think? Would it be worth it?

If not then maybe those who want poop from you might use them for toting it to their garden or containers?

Waco, I did not realize these were bags you had made. They are sooo cute. I thought they were just empty dog food bags. Never mind putting poop in them!!!! I want one! and not to put poop in. Told you it was dangerous when I think...chuckle.

If it's properly aged, it won't burn. Just let it set for a year and you'll be fine.

Thanks, Angel, for the offer of bags, but Waco is 90 miles east from where I live and I seldom travel that way.
I am putting the goat poop in black trash bags inside heavy plastic livestock feed sacks. Seems appropriate. lol

Gypsi, got you down for the blue salvia. Just a little more info: it's some kind of guaranitica, light blue flowers, spreads like wildfire. Kim (blueeyes) gave me a tiny little start 3-4 years ago, and the next thing I knew it had filled a 4x4 area. I wish my black-and-blue would do that! It's very pretty, but you might want to pot it.

I have 3 or 4 little (2-3") Texas native gold columbines coming up that I can share if anyone wants them. Not big enough to bloom this year, but will next March.

Here is one of several discourses on manure. this one is from Dogsnpetunias (glenna)

Llama poo is not a hot manure, so can be used directly on the beds. I would suggest that you first put it out in the sun, maybe in a wheelbarrow or tray, to get a lot of the weed seed to germinate before spreading on your beds because it does contain weed seed. A little sun and a slight bit of moisture and you'll see lots of germination.

In its "natural" form, llama poop is a very firm "bean." So what you received from me has been crushed. I just don't like the looks of llama "beans" in my yard but some people use it without crushing it. It breaks down really slow in that form. Llamas select a few sites in the pasture as their potty spots and all go there. Even the little babies will go to the potty spot within a couple hours of birth. So it is easy to gather the manure but, of course, weed and grass seed gets raked up with it, along with what seed has not been killed by the digestion process. Llamas are what is called a modified ruminant. Their stomach has three compartments and destroys more of the weed seed than, for example, a horse whose digestion goes through one long "tube" and straight out without processing it as much.

And I'm sure that is FAR more than you ever wanted to know but now you do !! LOL.

I thought that I had read somewhere that goat and rabbit manure are also "cold" manure but maybe someone knows more about that than I and can chime in.

That was great info Marty.
Glenna is such a neat person, I remember she gave us the llama manure in lovely little muslin bags with a drawstring, a wonderful prize indeed.!!!

Oh yeah the bags are sown into totes, sorry I wasn't clear on that LOL. I go through a large bag of dog food every week and a half so I should have a few of these made up before the swap.

Steadycam3 - of course you can have one! You are gifting me so much from your garden I don't mind at all bringing you one. Remember they are Poly Fiber Material so they are not "soft" they are a bit stiff although as you wash them in cold water they do break down a bit over time and are not so stiff. They are perfect for the garden or toting wet things from the beach since they are practically water proof.

I harvest my potatoes with them instead of using baskets, then I can leave the potatoes in them as long as they are not zip locked all the way closed, until I can get the storage ready for them. Then when I am ready to wash my taters, I just put water in the bag and wash them right there. So handy!

I can see them being used for other root veggies as well.

Stephanietx - Sure! Door prize coming up! Might have 2 that I can donate for that, I will let you know. I keep getting called into work on my days off so it depends on time of course.

Gypsy:

Looks like I will only have one banana pepper plant. The others got destroyed in a gardening accident ( I only had 3) I can bring you the one, but is there anything else I can offer you in trade in addition to that for the iris?

Angel, the Cuban Oregano was a cutting taken last fall. It's been on my kitchen windowsill for months!
